Commenting on the proposals from the European Commission today, Pete Tomlinson, Director of Post Trade at AFME, said:

“AFME welcomes the decision from the European Commission to extend the equivalence period for UK CCPs until 30 June 2025. This is an important step towards avoiding a significant financial stability risk and provides medium-term certainty for EU market participants. AFME continues to believe that voluntary, market-driven initiatives are important to help achieve the Commission's stated objective of growing clearing volumes in EU market infrastructures. We look forward to considering the accompanying Commission consultation in more detail.”
